This article from The American Psychiatric Association's "Psychiatric News" reports on a recently published study from The American Journal of Psychiatry Advance, that found psychodynamic/psychoanalytic psychotherapy to be equivalent to most other forms of treatment when it came to a number of different psychological disorders. The study employed a meta-analysis to look at a number randomized controlled trials of common treatments for a range of disorders. They employed a methodology that is even more stringent to many other studies that have found similar results. Psychodynamic/psychoanalytic psychotherapy was found to be at least equivalent to cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) with a range of psychological disorders and in some cases even superior to CBT.
